Does anyone know if google is going to be allowing api access to their cloud music service? I love the idea of syncing my music between my desktop and phone via the cloud, but I'm not a huge fan of their music player. I wasn't able to go to google i/o this year, so I didn't get a whole lot of 'insider' info. Has anyone heard anything about this? My gut feeling is that they're going to make it a google-only type thing to make people want to use their music app, but my hope is that it'll end up as a system feature.

Currently, the music app syncs with the cloud. Ideally, I'd like android as a system(accounts and sync) to sync the music from the cloud to a folder or something so I can use my own or any other number of awesome music apps, most notably federico's ubermusic(zune style).

If I get time this week I'm going to dig through the new music player and see if I can pull out any code that would make use of a new api or something, but like I said, my gut is telling me that this is coded to their app only.


Thoughts, ideas, and info greatly appreciated!
